Project-Based Learning (PBL)
When students graduate from school and head off to work, many of them will take on projects that will require a combination of 21st century skills as well as specific domain knowledge in STEM fields and beyond.
Our education team aims to help teachers get their kids ready for the professional world by providing a series of resources that can be infused in project-based learning activities. These activities are organized around our education model called Product Development Education. We recommend starting with our Product Development Education reference and then familiarizing with the Explore-Create-Share framework.
